Re: hierarchical database for repository
First, the suggestions I got privately: * pse-pro - An object database in Java * Meta-kit (http://www.equi4.com/metakit/), a C++ database engine Now, what I'm really looking for and more of what I hope to do with it: I'm trying to build an extremely lightweight repository for XML. Basically, it'll take SAX events going in, store the data hierarchically (and in the right place in the DB), and then be able to spit SAX events back out from any given location. Management and searching are useful features in the long run, but for right now I'm just looking for something that will let me store lots of nodes persistently without a lot of overhead, and without restrictions on length. Everything will be text - BLOB storage is unimportant. I don't want to be tied to a particular object representation of the information at this point, making the DOM a lot more than I need at this point. While an object database might be okay, it's not the 'object' part I care about - it's simply being able to store hierarchically linked nodes persistently. (Being able to change the links between them occasionally is also important.) Multi-user access is not presently important. The simpler the API, the better, at this point. I'm sort of going back to the late 60's and early 70's, before those relational people gave us all kinds of strange and highly useful ideas about structuring data. Fortunately, this isn't a commercial project, so you're all quite welcome to take any of these ideas and run with them. If I don't find anything that quite meets this level of simplicity, I suppose I'll roll my own. Thanks! Simon St.Laurent XML Elements of Style / XML: A Primer, 2nd Ed.
